The Horns only have one bye week next season and it comes at the end of September.

The 2020 schedule for the Texas Longhorns is now set after the Big 12 released the conference schedule on Tuesday morning.

After the previously-announced non-conference schedule that includes the home opener against South Florida, a trip to Baton Rouge to play LSU, and a home game against UTEP, Texas will open Big 12 play on the road for the first time since 2007 with a game against Kansas State.

The other road games include Texas Tech (Oct. 24), Kansas (Nov. 7) and Oklahoma State (Nov. 28), with the trip to Stillwater representing the first time the Longhorns will close a regular season facing the Cowboys.

Conference home games at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium will include West Virginia on Oct. 17, the latest date for a home opener since 2008. The other Big 12 opponents traveling to Austin next season are Baylor (Oct. 31), TCU (Nov. 14) and Iowa State (Nov. 21)

The annual Red River Showdown against Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl is scheduled for Oct. 10, with the Big 12 Championship game set for Dec. 5 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

The only bye week next season will be Sept. 26, so the Longhorns won’t have any chance to rest or recover once conference play begins.
